How do I become a member?
Starting September 11, you can sign up on our library catalog site: create an account and choose your membership! It is easiest to do this before you visit the library so you’re ready to check out when you come to a pop-up event, like our grand opening on September 23!
How much is a membership?
To launch the library, the first 50 memberships are $100 for 12 months! We’ll delete this blurb when that has passed 🙂 A regular membership is $150 a year, which is only $12.50 a month. What a deal!
What does the membership include?
Your membership is for your family/household (not per kid, phew!). You can check out 4 toys at a time and you can keep those toys for 4 weeks. You are welcome to return them earlier, or renew them if no one is waiting for them. We will always be acquiring new toys to add to the catalog, and everything is available to all members.
How do we check toys in and out?
Come to a pop-up event: these will happen about once per week as the library gets started, and frequency will increase as we get more toys and members (so tell your friends 😎).
Why should we join?
You should join because you’re interested in sustainability and you think we might all have too much stuff. You want more ways to reuse and share!
You should join because you’re not sure what your child likes, and you find that they barely play with the things you have (and they asked for some of those things!).
You should join because young children fly through developmental stages, and the toys that are “appropriate” are always shifting based on their development and their interests.
You should join because you’re interested in supporting something unique and creative that is by and for our community!
